History and Culture, and Statute (2) providing for provision for `statutory' professorships to

Decree (3): Academic posts in the Software
Engineering Programme and the Mathematical Finance Programme

Explanatory note

Under normal provisions, university lecturers may be appointed for an initial period of five
years, after which they shall be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age, except in
certain specific circumstances laid down in the Decrees under which temporary university
lecturers may be appointed for a period not exceeding five years to substitute for someone
on leave or to meet urgent teaching requirements. It has been agreed with the Oxford AUT,
however, that in other rare circumstances, i.e. where additional resources become available
to support academic appointments but the funding is too limited to permit the establishment
of permanent posts, fixed-term university lecturerships may be created by `notwithstanding'
decree. Such circumstances apply to the Software Engineering Programme, run jointly by the
Department for Continuing Education and the Computing Laboratory, and to the
Mathematical Finance Programme, run jointly by the Department for Continuing Education
and the Mathematical Institute. The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Personnel Committee and with the concurrence of the Continuing Education Board and the
Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, permits academic posts in the programmes to be
held on a fixed-term basis.

Text of Decree (3)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. VII, Sect. IV, § 3, cl. 3 (Statutes, 2000, p.
518), academic posts in the Software Engineering Programme and the Mathematical Finance
Programme may be held on a fixed-term basis.

1 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Removal of students from the Clinical Students' Register

Explanatory note

Graduation with the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine confers an automatic
right to provisional registration with the General Medical Council. The
General Medical Council has advised, and has agreed collectively with
universities, that in order to protect patients there should be a means of
preventing a student
from continuing to study for such a degree if he or she is unfit to practise
medicine. The
following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is
approved,
accordingly
make provision for the Medical Sciences Board to remove such a student,
after due process,
from the Clinical Students' Register. Opportunity is taken also to clarify the
respective
functions of the Medical and Clinical Students' Registers.

WHEREAS it is expedient to clarify the provisions governing
the power of the
Medical Sciences Board to remove a name from the Clinical Students'
Register, THE
UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. V, Sect. II, § 2 (Statutes, 2000, p. 39), delete cll. 3--4 and
substitute:

`3. The Medical Sciences Board shall be responsible for maintaining a
University
Medical
Students' Register of students admitted to work in Oxford for the First
Examination for the
Degree of Bachelor of Medicine, and shall make such regulations as it shall
deem necessary
for the discharge of such responsibility. No person shall be admitted to the
First Examination
for the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine unless his or her name is on the
register.

4. The Medical Sciences Board shall also maintain a Clinical Students'
Register of
students admitted to work in Oxford for the Second Examination for the
Degree of Bachelor
of Medicine, other qualifying medical examinations, or the Preliminary
Examination in
Medicine, and shall make such regulations as it shall deem necessary for the
discharge of this
responsibility. No person shall be admitted to the Second Examination for the
Degree of
Bachelor of Medicine unless his or her name is on the register. The Medical
Sciences Board
is empowered to remove any name from such register (in the case of a
matriculated member
of the University, after consultation with the student's society). The grounds
and procedures
for removal and the associated regulations, if not previously approved by
Council, and
amendments to procedures and regulations previously so approved, shall be
subject to the
approval of the General Purposes Committee of Council.'


Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Examination Decrees, 2000, p. 957, after l. 4 insert:

`14. Breach of the Code of Conduct for Medical Students, as approved
and from time
to
time amended by Council's General Purposes Committee on the
recommendation of the
Medical Sciences Board, may be deemed to be a ground for removal of a
student's name
from
the Clinical Students' Register according to procedures which shall be
approved from time
to time by Council's General Purposes Committee on the recommendation of
the Medical
Sciences Board.'

2 Ibid., l. 5, delete `14' and substitute `15'.

UNIVERSITY OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH
SERVICE


Oxfordshire Smoking Advice Service

The Oxfordshire Smoking Advice Service has been established to help smokers through the
process of giving up smoking. The broad aims of the service are to provide training and
support to health professionals in many settings and to run specialist services to smokers who
want to give up smoking.

The Smoking Advice Service can give help and support in the following ways:

At local Health Centres

Most local health centres in Oxfordshire now have a Smoking Cessation Adviser who can
help
smokers think about how they want to `Start to Stop'. The Adviser may be a GP, a practice
nurse, a health visitor, or another member of the practice team. Details of who the Smoking
Cessation Advisers are and where they are located can be obtained from the Smoking Advice
Service Helpline (telephone: Oxford 226663).


In a Smoke Stop Group

Groups of up to twenty smokers meet together each week to prepare for quitting and for the
first four weeks without cigarettes. The Smoking Advice Service is able to arrange groups
in
many locations around the county. There is no group at the University at present but, if there
is enough interest, the Smoking Advice Service will work with the University Occupational
Health Service to see if it is possible to set one up. Telephone Oxford (2)82676 or e-mail
occupational.health@uohs.ox.ac.uk to express interest. `Start to Stop' leaflets are being made
available in all university departments and more details can be obtained from the Smoking
Advice Service Helpline (telephone: Oxford 226663).


With Nicotine Replacement Products

Anyone entitled to free prescriptions (for example students) may be able to get a week's
supply of nicotine replacement products free of charge. More details can be obtained from
the
Smoking Advice Service Helpline (telephone: Oxford 226663).


With telephone support

The Smoking Advice Service helpline is open Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
Sam Andrews and Jackie Wilderspin are the Smoking Cessation Specialists at the service and
will be happy to receive enquiries from smokers on any of the opportunities outlined here
(telephone: Oxford 226663).

The following numbers are available at other times: the National Smoking Helpline
0800 169 0 169; the National Smoking and Pregnancy Helpline 0800 169 9 169.

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

Members of the University are reminded that all applications for
external research funding support must be endorsed on behalf of
the University through the RSO before they are despatched to the
sponsor, whether or not this is required by the funding body.

The reasons for the requirement are (i) to ensure that the
funds being requested are adequate for the purpose and that the
costing rules of the sponsor have been applied correctly, and
(ii) to ensure that the University could undertake the
obligations arising from an award and that these do not
contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit the original plus one copy of their
application, together with a completed copy of the University's
outside grants form, to the Research Services Office, Wellington
Square (telephone (2)70146), leaving three clear working days for
it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of
contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to be concerned
in any transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf
of the University except with the express consent of Council'.

The Research Services Office has been given authority to
approve research funding applications to external sponsors and
the terms of contracts in straightforward cases under this
provision; in more complicated cases, specific authority is
necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research Services Office,
whose staff would be pleased to help.
